What I Ate "When I Was Under the Weather" Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!! Only one more workday for us Canadians and then we have a long weekend ~ thank goodness for long weekends eh ;-) !!


Unfortunately, I am still sporting a very sore throat. Being sick in the summer really stinks :-(

So, in the spirit of feeling under the weather, here's a glimpse into my eats when I'm trying to get back to my super healthy self.

Of course, no sick day would be complete without a cold, delicious green smoothie. This one has frozen bananas, fresh local strawberries, organic baby spinach and water.

Feels AMAZING on my throat.

My other bevies of choice are vitamin waters and diet Gingerale. Normally, I'm not a big fan of pop, but I crave Gingerale when I'm sick!

For a snack, I've been having cut up apple slices with Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter.

You know what they apple a day, keeps the doctor away!!

Lunch has been a super healthy kale salad posted by Angela at Oh She Glows. This salad is Dee-eelicious!! It has lots of great textures and is jam packed with so many healthy veggies. If you're looking for some new salad ideas, definitely check this recipe out.

And for dinner, I've caved and had my all-time childhood fave.
Grilled cheese sandwich and a baked sweet potato. What can I say? I have no energy to put alot of effort into my dinner and this is still one of my favourites!!

So there you have it. Great eats for a sick chickie poo. If you're looking for more ideas, jump on over to Jenn's site, Peas and Crayons. Last week she had over 100 bloggers post about their awesome eats!!

  7. Aww that smoothie is a great idea when you're sick! Fruits always make me feel better. So does green tea! And nothing wrong with a classic grilled cheese ;)

  8. Aww I hope you get better soon lovely, there's nothing worse than feeling ill! Looks like you had plenty of good, nutritious food to build up your immune system though! I am loving the Dark chocolate dreams and apple combo especially - that one is my favorite at the moment! <3
    Whenever I'm ill I eat a lot of fruit for extra hydration, treat myself to all the foods I like in one day haha and have lots of cold stuff like smoothies, frozen fruit and sorbet to soothe my throat :)

  9. I have a hard time eating much when I'm sick, but I always drink a lot of tea!
    Your baked sweet potato looks like a good idea- warm, soft, sweet and nutritious!
    I'm new to your blog via WIAW- cheers!

  10. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well! Sprite and toast with cinnamon-sugar on it always makes me feel better when I'm under the weather.

    J likes chicken broth which he called Ache-y Teeth soup when he was idea why :)

  11. This is really weird... but every since I was a little kid I have craved green grapes and strawberry poptarts when I am sick. Normally, I would never eat a poptart, but when I am sick it sounds like heaven? Go figure...

  12. When I'm not feeling good I love my hubby's Chicken Matzo Soup. it hits the spot!

  13. Loving your healthy choices! I have to have sprite and orange juice when I'm sick! :) Following you now!

  14. I'm a gingerale when sick kind of gal too. There is something so soothing about the bubbles in my tummy.

  15. I don't like soda but HAVE to have gingerale whenever I'm sick too. Hmm, wonder why it always sounds so good? Hope you're feeling better!
